3 Touching Moments From “Link” That Made Viewers’ Hearts Flutter
A unique mix of fantasy, romance, and mystery, “Link” tells the story of a man who suddenly begins feeling all the emotions experienced by an unfamiliar woman with whom he shares a special “link.” Moon Ga Young stars as restaurant employee Noh Da Hyun, who has been unlucky in both love and life, while Yeo Jin Goo stars as Eun Gye Hoon, an executive chef whose everyday life is turned upside down when he unexpectedly begins going through all of Noh Da Hyun’s joy, sorrow, and pain together with her.
Here’s a list of three heart-fluttering moments that have captivated viewers!
1. An unforgettable midnight snack
Every night, Noh Da Hyun is tormented by nightmares of her stalker, and it’s common for her to wake up in a terrified sweat. Eun Gye Hoon is the same. One night, they both turn to drinking to lull them to sleep, and they end up crossing paths. Using the need for food as an excuse, they share a late-night snack together.
Noh Da Hyun was unable to take her eyes off of Eun Gye Hoon’s cooking performance, and his culinary creation helped dispel her dismal mood. Viewers could get a sense of how her feelings were changing as she ran toward the lit-up restaurant with a smile.
2. The heart-pounding umbrella scene
Unable to let go of the hope that Noh Da Hyun might be his sister who went missing 18 years ago, Eun Gye Hoon took care of her through more ways than just cooking. In episode 3, Noh Da Hyun was about to run through the rain with a bag over her head when Eun Gye Hoon appeared with an umbrella, turning the scene into a beautiful work of art.
Having no choice but to share one umbrella after the second one broke, the pair seemed to be a likely couple. Even though his shoulder was getting wet, he made sure to hold the umbrella fully over Noh Da Hyun’s head, proving his well-mannered nature towards her. Meanwhile, Noh Da Hyun peeked over at him with wavering eyes, revealing her emotional state. Furthermore, when Eun Gye Hoon started to ask, “Do you maybe…?” she retorted, “I’m not falling for you, I don’t like you. Happy?” Their small exchange of words was enough to make viewers’ hearts beat with excitement.
3. The emotion-sharing experiment
When Noh Da Hyun found out that Eun Gye Hoon could feel her emotions, she thought he was playing a childish trick on her and teased, “Then try to figure out what I’m feeling.” After they made eye contact, her wildly beating heart was immediately felt by Eun Gye Hoon.
Viewers were touched by the situation due to Eun Gye Hoon’s knowledge of her feelings and the distance he was trying to put between them, as well as Noh Da Hyun’s watery eyes as her feelings grew stronger. The pair are growing closer step by step, and it remains to be seen if their true feelings will be revealed.
“Link” airs every Monday and Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. KST.
